The Writing Center provides free writing assistance to all Alfred University students, faculty, and staff. Our eight student tutors represent a range of disciplines, including English, communications, psychology, Spanish, chemistry, biology, and fine art. Tutors are trained to deal with all kinds of writing tasks. Whether you need help discovering ideas, organizing information, revising a final draft, or preparing technical documents, the Writing Center can help you improve your writing abilities and gain confidence as a writer. The Center is located upstairs in Herrick Library in the Center for Academic Success. We also have Sunday and evening hours on the first floor of Herrick. You can make an appointment at our website, my.alfred.edu/writing. Walk-ins are welcome, but priority is given to scheduled appointments.
How to use the Writing Center:
Sign up for an appointment at alfred.edu/writing. We welcome walk-ins, but priority goes to students who have made an appointment.
Our standard appointments last 30 minutes. If you think you will need longer, sign up for two.
Please bring a copy of your writing assignment with you.
If you must cancel an appointment, you can do so on line up to one hour before the appointed time.

In the SoAD First Year Program, students will receive advising as a group on Wednesdays as well as during individually set up advising meetings prior to Spring registration and Sophomore registration. They also have access to three Advisors: Angie To, Katarina Riesing, and Michelle Illuminato. Once you arrive on campus, feel free to ask any of us for an appointment or to answer a question. We also will be having an advising session for those with specific issues during orientation week.
